Now that we know that heat causes harsh winters, one can only imagine how hot the last ice age must have been.
All of the maps were colored red back then, that’s how hot it was!
well the people are naked in all those cave paintings
Does anyone really know what caused the Ice Age? The idea of gigantic ice sheets down to modern day NYC and Chicago has always seemed outrageous to me. And it wasn’t very long ago in geological terms. There were people around then. How did they cope? Did they all move south?
The humans just barely survived the last two glaciations: according to e.g. mtDNA analysis, there were “bottlenecks” both around 70,000 and 170,000 years ago.
Notice that most of Africa was a desert at that time. Also, even in moister areas, plants probably grew slower due to CO2 starvation.
I don’t think your right about Africa being a desert.. most of info I read shows north Africa as dense grassy plain populated with lakes and animals.. as the ice age ended.. it became a desert and the humans migrated into Nile basin.. about 10,000 years ago or so.
It was so hot that ice covered all the way from the North Pole down to Iowa in the USA. That’s pretty hot out. That’s how global warming gets you. Before you know it you’re frozen in ice a mile high.
The good thing about having that mile of ice on top of you is the protection it gives from sun burn. That global warming sun is unforgiving and you could end up with blisters in the burn. Whew, the ice saves you!
